a book list by Leah Smith, librarian and avid reader
The Books for a Better Life Awards, founded in 1996, have honored more than 400 self-improvement titles and raised more than $1.5 million for the New York Chapter of the Multiple Sclerosis Society. The following are the winners in the Inspirational Memoir category from 2005 to 2008. (Editor's note: We think this prize started in 1996 but had a devil of a time finding any info on earlier winners. If anyone knows, please drop us a line.)
